How is eyelid surgery performed
Eyelid surgery is usually performed under local anesthesia, meaning you will be awake during the procedure but will not feel any pain. The surgeon will make incisions in the natural creases of your eyelids to minimize scarring. Then, excess skin and fat will be removed. The incisions will be closed with dissolvable stitches.
Am I suitable for eyelid surgery?
